WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Sunday, Feb. 25 at 2 pm, the Clark Art Institute broadcasts a recording of Shakespeare's "King Lear" filmed live in London. 
This event takes place in the Clark's auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center.
According to a press release:
Ian McKellen stars as King Lear in this tender, violent play. Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two aging fathers—one a King, one his courtier—reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends. Johnathan Munby directs this “nuanced and powerful” (The Times) contemporary retelling.
Tickets $18 ($16 members, $14 students, $5 children 15 and under). Advance registration required; capacity is limited. No refunds. Accessible seats available; for information, call 413 458 0524.
